[mythtv-users] *Performance* of LiveTV auto recording?

I want to be able to disable LiveTV's auto recording. Well, I found this LOONG
thread, but the only thing discussed was the problem with disk space required
I don't care about disk space. My reason is performance. I don't have too
fast a system (P3/800), and watching LiveTV already gulps about 180 MB of
memory and about 30-50% of CPU. I have done no measurements, but I suspect a
non-trivial part of that is due to disk-I/O (yes, DMA is enabled).
I'd argue the performance would be higher (significantly so? I hope..) if you
could just watch the DVB stream instead of unnecessarily "swapping" it to disk
